Bullying has become one of the biggest problems in the world among kids and students. A lot of kids suffer from it and do not know how to deal with it. Most times, these kids are affected by bullying and are scared for life. They end up being traumatized and their behavior in the future might be determined by the bullying that happened in the past. Their psychological state may be damaged forever and they may not be able to interact well with others in the future. You will find that most bullied people tend to keep to themselves and some might be rebellious or end up being bullies themselves.
Bullying can be defined as any behavior that is aggressive and unwanted. It usually happens among kindergarten and school aged children. In rare cases, it may continue to adulthood. This unwanted, aggressive behavior is, in most cases, harmful and is repeated over time.
Bullying, usually among school kids, includes actions such as attacking someone, be it verbally or physically. It can also include making threats to someone, hoping to earn respect or to be feared. Excluding someone from a group or even spreading rumors about them is also a form of bullying as it makes them a victim and they may end up feeling less confident about themselves.
Bullying can be prevented and teachers, parents and any other adult can actually play a role in preventing bullying. First of all, children need to be taught about bullying. They must know what it is so they can identify it when it happens. They also must be taught how to love and accept others as they are, respect them and treat them with kindness. This way, everyone ends up respecting the next person and the world becomes a better place.
